Best Bets:

CLEVELAND (-5.5) over Toronto

This was a close game two weeks ago. Cleveland has played a string of close games the last week or so, including their lone loss to Atlanta. I think they make a concerted effort to blow the doors off Toronto tonight in a statement win.

MINNESOTA (+2) over Charlotte

Minnesota showed a lot in their blowout win over the Lakers on Sunday. They’re second only to the Clippers in Net Point Differential during first and second quarters, then drop to dead last in third quarters. Charlotte, on the other hand, is the top third quarter team in the league thus far. Thibs knows that. He knows Clifford will have the Hornets ready coming out of the half. Look for the Wolves to come out of the half very ready to play tonight.

Chicago @ Portland OVER (213.5) 

Love the shootout potential of this game, especially in Portland. I’d lean Chicago (+3.5) but I’m much more confident in the Over. Couple of great backcourt matchups. Excited how these two teams decide to handle the matchups.


From today:

Phil Jackson Is An Embarrassment


From this mornings Ham’s Hoops Roundup:


Last night was one of those nights where you watch Kristaps with a Grinchian smile. Full package on display. Worked the glass like Duncan, displayed that crossover-stepback he developed this offseason, crashed the boards all night.

Oh Yeah, He Also Did This


Justin Holiday Might Be A Quality Bench Player

Very, very quietly, Justin Holiday has become a quality bench player for the Knicks. He’s nothing particularly special, but he can defend and shoot the three and do some athletic things – all at a position the Knicks were very much lacking. Anyone who’s watched this team over the last year knows the best lineups are those with Melo and KP at the 4 and 5. I’m not saying they’ve found an answer at the 3 in Justin Holiday. But through ten games I’ve enjoyed what I’ve seen from him.

No, Nah, NOPE

Good Decision, Marcus Morris

Bad Decision, Justin Hamilton

I Respect James Harden For Taking It Easy On Philly

He honestly could have gone for 50 by halftime. There are times where it just looks unfair for Harden to be on the same court as some of these guys. Last night was one of those night.


Sure, Why Not


Anthony Davis, V V Good

I Thoroughly Enjoy Watching Marcus Smart Get Dunked On

That’s A BIG Road Win For Memphis


The Clippers Are Clicking On All Cylinders 

Eh… Maybe Not All Cylinders
